A flash drive serves a different purpose than backup. Think about it; the standard ones these days are maybe 8GB. 8GB is maybe enough for some of the photos I’d want to backup, possibly all of them. But then it would be only photos. And a flash drive is really easy to lose or get stolen. Hardly secure.

Then again, I’d get an external drive if I’m looking for a good on-site backup solution, but if there’s plenty of reason for an off-site backup solution.

Hopefully, though, these guys and others who have other great ideas can market this correctly and get the attention they deserve. Maybe using Vimeo and AdWido would be helpful.

However, I agree with Steve D. statement about the competition from the manufactures.

I am all for cloud computing, but to wrestle my information from me and have a 3rd party being responsible for the safeguard of it is something I cannot phantom. It is very easy for me to keep my stuff backed up and safe.

One thought, if it is easy for me to retrieve my information from their services, what safeguards do they have keep others from easily retrieving my information as well!

So, with that said, backup cloud computing will never be on my list of things to do.

It either works or it doesn’t, at a price commensurate with the value. Why not start a taxi company – that’s almost as innovative.
